This text prepares social work students for effective work in the field through proven learning experiences that are as close to real-life practice as they can get from a textbook. The book has long been praised for the rigor of its theory. It is regarded as the classic and best source for helping students learn direct social work practice skills. The book integrates the major theories and skills that direct social work practitioners need to understand and master. Consisting of four parts, the book begins by identifying the mission of social work, its values, and knowledge base. The authors then differentiate generalist from direct practice and explore roles of direct practitioners. Common elements amongst diverse theorists are then examined while key intervention strategies and various client population and practice settings are presented. Specifically, Part One provides the foundational/values and knowledge base material; Part Two is devoted to the beginning phase of the helping process; Part Three addresses the middle phase (goal attainment strategies); and Part Four clarifies the termination phase of direct practice.

So Rich So Poor Excerpt :

“A competent, thorough assessment from a veteran expert in the field.” —KirkusReviews Income disparities in our wealthy nation are wider than at any point since the Great Depression. The structure of today’s economy has stultified wage growth for half of America’s workers—with even worse results at the bottom and for people of color—while bestowing billions on the few at the very top. In this “accessible and inspiring analysis”, lifelong anti-poverty advocate Peter Edelman assesses how the United States can have such an outsized number of unemployed and working poor despite important policy gains. He delves into what is happening to the people behind the statistics and takes a particular look at young people of color, for whom the possibility of productive lives is too often lost on the way to adulthood (Angela Glover Blackwell). For anyone who wants to understand one of the critical issues of twenty-first century America, So Rich, So Poor is “engaging and informative” (William Julius Wilson) and “powerful and eloquent” (Wade Henderson).

Behavior Management From Theoretical Implications to Practical Applications Excerpt :

Authored by nationally recognized scholar and behavioral consultant Dr. John W. Maag, this book focuses primarily on students' observable behaviors and the environmental factors that affect their expression. As Maag points out, behavior management is probably one of the most misunderstood concepts in education. Written in a very accessible style, this book demystifies stereotypical beliefs and misconceptions regarding the use of reinforcement, punishment, and self-control. Maag offers clear, but detailed descriptions of proven intervention techniques, supplemented by a range of step-by-step guidelines, sample forms, charts, graphs, and illustrations that assist teachers in implementing the techniques. Although the techniques described in the book are based on a sound theoretical and empirical foundation, the author limits the use of technical jargon and infuses real-life examples and case studies that clarify and illuminate the presentation.
